Troop actions

Having troops is great, but that's just a first step, the next is to use them to take advantage.

Below you'll find a list of the different ways in which troops can act.

Reinforcement Scouting Raid Attack Siege

Troops may be sent to other villages as reinforcements. Reinforcements are usually intended to help defend someone from an attack, but this is not always the case.

You can reinforce other players as long as they are neither in beginner’s protection nor banned.

In order to reinforce someone you need troops and a target village/city that can be chosen via the map, the statistics, or by entering the village name or coordinates of the village you want to defend in the Rally Point.

Troops that have been sent to reinforce another village will stay there until they die in battle, starve, are recalled by the owner, or are sent back by the player you are defending.

Troops that are reinforcing other villages can be seen in the “Stationed” tab of the Rally Point. Here, you can see which villages your troops are reinforcing and the crop upkeep of the troops. Also, you have the option to withdraw your troops from this screen.

Reinforcement is a military tactic that can be used in a number of ways:


  • A way of preventing an opponent from using its crops and preventing upgrades of village/city (but remember that reinforcements will starve first)
  • A way to save your crops by letting other players feed your troops
  • Make it harder for your opponents to loot by reinforcing the villages they raid


  • Help a village under attack to defend itself
  • A way to protect valuable or vulnerable troops
  • Gathering the troops of several players for a kingdom defensive operation.

Some additional information about reinforcements:

  • There is no time limit, and a reinforcement can be long-term.
  • Reinforcements from a village/city that are deleted, conquered, or destroyed will disappear from the village/city they are reinforcing
  • Reinforced troops are fed by the village where they are stationed

How to send reinforcements

In the Map view, click on the village you wish to reinforce and select "Send troops".

Next, enter the number of troops you wish to send and select "Reinforcement" as the type of attack.

Item Selection

Finally, click “Send” and the troop(s) will be sent.

Once they have reached the target village, the troops will defend it against all attacks. The player receiving reinforcements cannot use them in any other way.
